I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Hyatt in September 2013.

Interview Details – The first interview was a breeze.They called me back to meet with the department mgr and I thought I did okay but he was so stern and straight forward I got nervous. But overall I knew I didn't what the job after they told me what the start pay for the position would be. I'm glad they passed.

I applied through other source and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Hyatt.

Interview Details – The hiring process has to be started online at the careers section of the corporate website, so do this first; make a profile and apply for the job you want in your local Hyatt. Be persistent; HR is busy, so call them every day asking for an interview. Good Luck!

Interview Question – Are you easily offended?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There wasn't one. It's common to be accepted and then immediately thrown to the wolves in Banquets.

Full Time Server Interview

Full Time Server
Westlake Village, CA

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Hyatt in July 2013.

Interview Details – WORST INTERVIEW PROCESS I'VE EVER EXPERIENCED!!! Made it through 2 interviews, now don't get me wrong, I'm not bitter I didn't get the job, I'm upset that the restaurant mgr went out of her way to tell me I had the job in the bag only to go home to a "thanks but no thanks" email. I never asked how I did, she just gushed. I'm absolutely mortified and will never step into another Hyatt again as a result.
